"60 minutes on cnbc." i'm lesley stahl. i'm lesley stahl. thanks for joining us. [ticking] >> in a year's time, oil, a commodity that was traditionally priced according to supply and demand, doubled to nearly $150 a barrel, and then crashed along with the stock market. so what happened? well, it turns out the price of oil may have as much to do with traders and speculators on wall street as oil company executives or sheikhs in saudi arabia. >> i tease people sometimes that--you know, people say, "well, who's the largest oil company in america?" and they'll always say, "well, exxon mobil or chevron or b.p." but i'll say, "no, morgan stanley." [ticking] >> this is shaybah, a desert wilderness where temperatures can reach 135 degrees. beneath these sand dunes lie 18 billion barrels of oil, more than four times the proven reserves of alaska. and it's costing billions and billions to tap into it. with all the talk about kicking our addiction to foreign oil, the kingdom of saudi arabia is doing everything it can to keep the oil age going. let me be blunt: is it your hope to prev

[ticking] [ticking] >> it is the mark of the yakuza: ornate, full-body tattoos that cover the members of the japanese mob. so how did one of their most notorious godfathers get into america and jump to the front of a line for a lifesaving liver transplant? this reporter found out and says it may cost him his life. >> as he was leaving and getting in his car, he said, "that"-- you know, "that--that goddamn american jew reporter. i want to kill him." [ticking] >> greg mortenson's book three cups of tea is a publishing phenomenon that has made him a celebrity, a cult-like figure on the lecture circuit, and inspired people to give nearly $60 million to his charity, and it all began with one simple story. >> it's a beautiful story, and it's a lie. >> we wanted to talk to mortenson about that and some other things, but he didn't want to talk to 60 minutes. >> steve kroft. >> nice to meet you. >> how you doing? >> thanks. >> got five minutes for us today? >> um...

that's it for this edition of 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm morley safer. thank you for watching. [ticking] [ticking] >> banks were filing foreclosure lawsuits by the millions, and in the rush to collect, it appeared some financial firms were using phony legal documents to throw people out of their homes. chris pendley says he forged 4,000 bogus mortgage documents a day for major u.s. banks. and your previous experience in banking? >> none. [ticking] >> it started out as a mortgage crisis. then it slowly evolved into a credit crisis. now it's something entirely different and much more serious. >> this is a full-blown financial storm and one that comes around perhaps one every 50 or 100 years. this is the real thing. >> and much of what went wrong on wall street could be traced back to something called "credit default swaps." they were traded in a risky shadow market, and they were at the heart of the financial meltdown. [ticking] >> it has tentacles as wide as anything i've seen. i think, next to housing, this is the single most important issue in the united states and certainly

. hello. time for americans to wake up. >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm morley safer. in this edition, we take a look at the impact of global expansion on american corporate tax loopholes, counterfeit drug trafficking, and the economic rise of brazil. we begin with the always taxing topic of taxation. companies searching out tax havens are nothing new. in the '80s and '90s, there was an exodus to bermuda and the cayman islands, where there are no taxes at all. when the government threatened to clamp down on tax dodging, many companies decided to leave the caribbean, but as lesley stahl first reported in march 2011, instead of coming back home, they went to safer havens like switzerland. >> several of these companies came to this tiny dot on the swiss map called zug, a small, quaint, medieval town. i don't think anybody's ever heard of zug in the united states. hans marti, who heads zug's economic development office, showed off the nearby snow-covered mountains. but zug's main selling point isn't a view of the alps. how low are the taxes here? >> it's something between

. >> of course i was devastated. i was hurt. >> welcome to "60 minutes on cnbc." i'm lesley stahl. in this edition, we examine the boardroom intrigue at hewlett-packard between 2005 and 2007. it was a tumultuous saga that led to criminal charges, executive firings, accusations of sexism, and lots and lots of finger-pointing. and in the midst of it all, three of the protagonists told me their sides of the story -- pattie dunn, thomas perkins, and carly fiorina. we begin with pattie dunn. it was 2005, and she was appointed chairman of hewlett-packard. yet just 20 months later, dunn was gone from hp due to her participation in an internal investigation that involved spying on members of the board. less than a month later, dunn was charged with four felony counts for her role in that investigation. in october 2006, only hours after the criminal charges against her were announced, pattie dunn sat down with me to talk about what happened at hewlett-packard. let me ask you the obvious question that i think every lawyer who's watching this is asking himself or herself. why are you giving

be greater than we expect. >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm morley safer. in this edition, we look at the effect of three disasters: the massive 2010 gulf oil spill, the chilean mine collapse that trapped 33 miners underground for weeks, and, in 2011, the massive earthquake in japan followed by a devastating tsunami. we begin with the bp oil spill and kenneth feinberg, the lawyer who is the go-to guy for thankless jobs, america's arbiter of human suffering. we first met him when he was adjudicating the fund for the almost 3,000 victims of 9/11. in the fall of 2010, we caught up with him again. he now has what in sheer numbers may be the biggest headache of all: compensating the thousands of angry people affected by the spill. feinberg held town meetings for weeks in the gulf states, where, armed only with his reputation and a $20 billion pot of money, he called for patience and accepted all blame. >> i don't care what bp did before. no more bp. blame me. don't blame bp anymore. >> feinberg may be perceived by most americans as the fairest in the land-- if not for looks, then surely

you how to play this. so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. you heard the chatter, so have i. what's that charter? that we're putting in a top right here, right now. because given the weak employment number, the slowly growing economy, and the lack of any positive growth turn in europe or china, we can't possibly improve on the earnings we already have. to me, it's the reason why even as we bumped up against the earlier highs again, we can't seem to take them out. we can't seem to leave them convincingly in the rear-view mirror. the dow up one point. look, i get this. i get the arguments, you know, what's known as top-down analysis at work. that top-down analysis, it's suspect. it has to do with the relation between the economy and the stock. with the assumption what really matters to the stock is whether the economies in the world accelerate or decelerate. that kind of thesis, it can make some sense. it's not fachous. if economies around the globe are slowing down, as is the case in europe or china, or showing little growth in jobs or goods or services sold, it does stand to reaso

associates tells cnbc, "i think gold should be a portion of everyone's portfolio to some degree because it diversifies the portfolio. it is the alternative money. we have a situation now, he continues, where we have too much debt and too much debt leads to printing money. gold's clearly moving on those comments. sharon epperson has the very latest trade heading into the weekend. >> the momentum and the trading action here on the commodities floor definitely here in the gold pits today. we did see gold prices hit $1,790 an ounce, the highest price since february. we have pulled back a bit and some other commodities as well but we are looking at near highs of the year. this run that we've seen in gold is mirrored by what we saw in silver. silver though actually pulling back first and some traders say some of the rebalancing that may be going on in the s&p may have impacted other asset classes. still, big profits in these metals over the course of the week. we'll have more on the metal's close at 4:30. >>> jeff kilburg has been here all week. first, do you agree with mr. dalio? >> absolute

in other data. in an exclusive interview with cnbc, mario monti says he will not access the bond buying program anytime soon. >> i believe that what italy is doing in terms of domestic policies both budgetary and fiscal discipline and structure reforms should be enough to reassure the markets. >> you can catch made he rea's full interview on u.s. closing bell at about 21:00 central european time. steven, welcome. >> my pleasure. >> your initial thoughts on this italian gdp data and mario monti saying the country won't apply the bailout. >> g did dpvised town. it's too early for any of the policy shiftses to have had an impact. i think with respect to both italy and spain, there's he a tremendous reluctance to accept the potential constraints that would come with taking a program, not so much now because the ecb -- everyone seems to be res assuring them that they feel that they're in compliance. the question is what happens in six months, what happens in a year if there's a slowdown and all of a sudden they find the troica knocking on the door and talking about fiscal issues. what they h

reveals. what can we expect this time around? cnbc's john fortt covers the name better than anyone. he's also making his "options actions" "debut. welcome to the show. >> thanks, melissa. this has probably been the worst-kept iphone secret ever. we've been seeing leaked parts all over the internet for months now. everything i've been hearing is that those parts are legitimate. expect a phone that's longer but not significantly wider than the 4s. expect redesigned earbuds, smaller dock connector. more significantly, expect the iphone 4s to stick around the 99 bucks and the 4 to be free with a two-year contract. that's important because for the first time, verizon customers are likely to have the option to buy a free iphone. earlier this week i talked to verizon wireless cmo tammy irwin who said the new share everything data plans they've got are enticing parents to buy their kids more smartphones instead of those keyboard data phones they had before. and a free iphone gives verizon -- she didn't say this but i'm drawing this conclusion -- an opportunity to upsell teens and tweens into t

well, that's our edition of 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm steve kroft. thanks for joining us. [ticking] [ticking] >> warren buffett, america's second-richest man, is a household name, his son howard not so much. and yet he's the person warren buffett wants to succeed him as chairman of berkshire hathaway, the mega holding company that buffett built. like his father, howard does not live the high life. in fact, he's a farmer who would rather dig up the ground than sit in a boardroom. are you sure he's your son? >> well, i think that's worth checking out. you'll have a big exclusive. [ticking] [bell ringing] >> for 150 years, the floor of the new york stock exchange was the center of the financial world. but today most trading in stocks is done elsewhere by robot computers that buy and sell in microseconds, faster than you can blink an eye. and the computers have done so well that some institutional traders have come to believe that the game is rigged. are humans ever involved in the trading? >> humans are not involved in the trading because humans are way too slow.

[ticking] you describe bill gates in very harsh terms. um, you've described him as being quite abusive. i mean, it's not a pretty picture. >> and i felt like when i wrote it, i should just tell it like it happened, in an unvarnished way, warts and all. >> you'll hear how the two high school buddies who started microsoft and a computer revolution had some pretty trying times along the way. do you think he came to think that you weren't working as hard as he was

on this topic. and greg cox has been doing terrific reporting on this on you must a must-read article on high-frequency trading say it is worse than you thought. some firms themselves are extremely concerned. >> this report came from the chicago fed. they surveyed 30 industries, people connected to the hft business in one way or another. they found an industry where speed is everything, even beyond eclipsing any kind of controls where computer algorithms running wild. they're using patches to fix the run-away algos that are making the problems even worse. an industry where even the participants understand that we need regulation, we need to slow things down a little bit. >> jeff, you know that a lot of times they'll put in a fix and the market finds a way around it or market participants find a way around it. right? >> absolutely, sue. i've personally been a hood ornament on many hfc situations. it is very frustrating from traders because at the end of the day we feel like it is's not a level playing field. we're at a gun fight with a knife. we need a restrictor plate on these high-fr

at 1-800-743-cnbc. here is the thing. you have to understand on another day where the average is slowly ground to a mixed close, dow losing 17 points. awe, there goes that streak! s&p ending slightly low, down 0.01%. nasdaq advancing 0.13%. not bad. what it says is we're in a good market. the fed is throwing gasoline on the fire. europe is getting its act together slowly but surely, i think. and as long as you don't fall into the trap of buying companies that are what we call long-term secular decline, meaning if the economy gets better, they won't do well, i think you'll do just fine. i think we're done with the days when the averages get hammered. and then stay hammered. i think we're now in a world where they can't rebound fast enough on some days. that's the new environment. at least until the end of the year. as hedge fund managers desperately try to catch up to the averages by picking up stocks aggressively on pretty much every dip, that's been this pattern. so with that in mind, what is the game plan for next week? what what do you do for an encore if your stock is already up 86%

-sized deal. jackie deangelis has more on that and the latest headlines coming into the cnbc newsroom. good evening. >> good evening to you. texans who live in the austin area will be able to pay to drive 85 miles an hour on a 41-mile stretch of road beginning in november. texas has a contract with a spanish toll road operating company that called for paying more for higher speeds. so the state gets an extra hundred million because out set the limit at 85. just to make that stretch more attractive to drivers the state lowered the speed limit on a parallel stretch of highway from 65 to 55. some peel familiar with texas driving practices may argue a lot of texans drive 85 normally. it's a big state. so will they pay for what many do anyway? we'll see. two weeks after lance armstrong gave up his right to fight doping charges the head of the world cycling federation told the ap he's considering an amnesty program for cyclists in a move to clean up cycling. the question is if cyclists would fess up. finally tonight a scary version of oreos for halloween. candy corn oreo. most of the moorm is try

. this morning they're up 43 cents to 92.28. i don't know if you saw the story on cnbc yesterday about how an oil trader who was drunk a couple years ago back in 2009 was the reason that prices spiked overnight. he blacked out and didn't realize he broke 7 million contracts or something overnight. kept bidding it up. but let's take a look at the ten year note. at this point ten year yielding 1.625%. dollar has been interesting this week as it's gained always bit against the euro, but today that trend has turned around. 1.294 is where the euro is trading. up against the yen, down against the swiss franc. and gold prices are up by $3.50. $1784 an ounce. >> all day we are looking ahead to the fourth quarter. we begin with michelle caruso-cabrera and what to look for in europe. >> cnbc's chief international correspondent, here's what to watch for overseas in the fourth quarter. mid october, the transition to a new government in china. only happens every ten years. it's been delayed racked with controversy and prevented leadership from focusing on the economy as much as it might have otherwise. in eur

at 1-800-743-cnbc. weren't we supposed to be finished going higher for the year? wasn't the most recent selloff with any end to the hoax? a strong fourth quarter begins monday? was today where the averages roared, dow gaining 72 points. nasdaq climbing 1.39% the real deal, and the last few days were an aberration. you know how important this question is? every money manager and his brother in this country is trying to figure out which trajectory is phony and which is real. you know how we work on "mad money," we, meaning me. we have a distinctly joanie mitchell approach to the market. we look at stocks from both sides. what i want to do is trace the view from both sides now and then reach a conclusion about the ultimate direction that awaits us. first let me give you the bear case because that is most salient right now, because until this morning, the bear case had suddenly come to fore. there was so much to be negative about. the terrible durable goods numbers, further reduction in gross domestic product. they all point to further reductions in earnings estimates. as well as what we no

to cramerica. my job isn't just to teach and to educate. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. if you come out here to talk about stocks every night, you better believe you're going to make some whoppers, some mistakes in a visible and highly public way. by you i mean me. that's why every year at this time, i like to atone for my bad calls in keeping with the taken of atonement. in order to learn from what i did wrong and hopefully earned your respect for what i'm trying to accomplish on "mad money" even when i don't get it right. there are always going to be calls that don't pan out the way we expect but good investors add in for self-fluctuation to minimize the blunders of the costly errors repeating themselves. tonight, i'm going to demonstrate a number of bad calls i have made on "mad money" in the past year. explaining why they occurred, what went wrong and what you can still do about it to temper the severe decree and make things better. before i get into specifics, though, let me give you a sense of what i see as the biggest kinds of errors i seem to have made over the last year and wholly v

-800-743-cnbc. the moment i read the news about federal express blowing up last night, wall street speak for missing the numbers horribly, i began to dread today's session. what company touches more consume rs and businesses large or small than fedex? i uh expected the market to be obliterated. [ sell, sell, sell ] [ house of pain ] yet what did we get? the dow rallied 12 points. the s&p losing just .11%. minuscule. i have been schooled. i know you don't want to hear about how confused i am, how mystified. you want me to explain what happened in a way that makes it clear and rational. if you read my midnight tweetweet tweets @jimcramer about how fedex's blown quarter was like a running back with a blown knee going into the big fantasy game or the big game between the cowboys and giants meaning a tough session ahead of us then you know i got the market wrong. hey, i don't like being wrong. i don't like thinking federal express can preannounce negative earnings and out barely affects the averages. the dow didn't go down. uh-uh prefer markets that are predictable, logical. this one is not a

-800-743-cnbc. this business of stocks isn't politics. it's not like a presidential campaign where each candidate tries to explain why you might be better or worse off than you were four years ago. no. today's rally where the dow rocketed 245 points, the s&p rose 2.04%, and the nasdaq vaulted 2.17% is about something different. it's about asking whether companies are better off than they were four years ago, not you. because those are the old stock prices we are now challenging with this amazing run. the stock prices of companies now versus then. are they better off? the difference between policy and profits confuses more of you than just about anything else i know. we all know people who are hurting. there is not a lot of hiring going on. five years ago we had 5% unemployment. now it's 8%. that's an election issue. i'm sure a lot of people aren't better off because of the tough job market. that's not what's at stake when it comes to our stocks. we are not investing in whether you find it easy or hard to get a job. we are not investing in your ability or inability to get along. we are n

money. my job isn't just to entertain but i'm trying to teach you out here. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. has the market lost its mind? we have so much bad news today they should have been hammered. they should have been crushed. laid to waste. but we closed the day in the black? the dow closing 15 points, s&p goinging .4, nasdaq up .02? it was unbelievable. it was unfathomable. i'm sure many of you are thinking what the heck is going on with this whacko nut job -- come on. humor me. we have the worst estimate to job creation number in ages. a number that's so disappointing. i mean, just incredible. it took your breath away. out's not a random commerce department figure. some boring purchasing manager's report. some consumer confidence number. it's a big enchilada. the nonfarm payroll report. out's got guac and picante. it's the most important number yet. the one with maximum negative um pact on the stock market when it's been a wee bit disapointing as opposed to missing by a country mile like today. you have the biggest semiconductor company on earth intel preannouncing a tremendous mis

much. here's what i have to say. sometimes there are people in this very building at cnbc that i completely defer to because they know something better than i do and i'm not going to pretend i know it better. herbgreenberg has really diagnosed the problems in green mountain and i think they're worrisome enough that there's a red flag. he concerned. if herb greenberg is concerned -- i've known herb for almost 20 years -- then i'm concerned. i'm not going to bless your investment. to ron in new jersey. >> caller: booyah! kraft, how will it affect my concerns. >> i want to you buy the kraft. there were four arguments today, i think the company is underpromising and they will overdeliver. i want to buy this. stephanie link and i were discussing this. at 38.39, we're pulling the trigger. hope and dreams. rejoice in hope. hope that the fed and china and germany will do the right thing. look, i don't care about hope. i care about facts and many of the stocks that have been rallying are based on facts, better earnings, better sales, better growth, better dividends. "mad money" will be ri

hour. the frenzy can be signaling more good news for apple. cnbc's jon fortt loved "options action" so much last week that he decided to visit again. hey john. >> hey melissa, that's right. >> there is some good news out of apple today though i think some people are overstating it. as you said apple had to push out the ship date for the iphone 5 from one week to two much more quickly than it happened a year ago with the 4 s. it took them almost all day. this time it happened within about an hour. but you got to keep in mind that this time wal-mart is taking preorders and they are launching this phone in nine countries a week from now instead of just seven. you have to question how has apple allocated the units? are they really putting up a lot more units for preorder than a year ago? this might have do with how much they're allocating the units with how they're moving it out. you want to watch on monday. in the morning i believe possibly around 8:30 your time apple could put out a statement saying exactly how many they sold. in the first 24 hours. we could see statements from carriers
